Three months before she was thrust into the national political spotlight, Gov. Sarah Palin was asked to handle a much smaller task: addressing the graduating class of commission students at her one-time church, Wasilla Assembly of God.

Sarah Palin's odd religious sect should NOT be a test of public office as she runs for Vice President, but given that John McCain and Sarah Palin have already made Palin's religion a campaign issue, it's a valid topic for public consideration (not as an electoral factor). The Wasilla Assemblies of God is holding, in one week, what it calls a Masters Commission in which prophecies for God and Alaska and the United States will be discussed. It seems that the church's leaders claim that God is "invading" Alaska and say that Wasilla is the key to God's plans for the entire world. It's hard to conclude that they are not talking about Sarah Palin's vice presidential campaign.
